The objective of the curriculum was to increase the knowledge in the 3 “recipient cities” about DRM and to have strong and competent focal points/coordinators for DRM, able to lead the development of DRM in the cities the following years in cooperation with their colleagues in the cities and other relevant stakeholders.
This general objective has to be translated to a so-called learning outcome. According to the European Qualifications Framework (EQF) learning outcomes are “statements of what a learner is expected to know, be able to do and understand at the end of a learning sequence”. In general terms, the learning outcomes are:
- reaching EQF level 5 for knowledge of the field of DRM
- reaching EQF level 5 for competence on coordinating DRM.
The general assumption was that the target audience of the curriculum (the DRM focal points of the 3 cities) start from an EQF level 2 of knowledge and competence for DRM.
|Knowledge||EQF level 2 of knowledge – basic factual knowledge of the field of DRM||EQF level 5 of knowledge – comprehensive, specialized, factual and theoretical knowledge of the field of DRM and an awareness of the boundaries of that knowledge|
|Skills||EQF level 2 of competence – work on DRM under supervision, with some autonomy||EQF level 5 of competence – ability to coordinate and supervise DRM processes; review and develop perfor-mance of self and others|
The level of knowledge on DRM has been measured at the beginning, half-way and at the end of the curriculum. The average EQF level of the seven participants started at 2,35 and grew to 4,64 at the end of the project, in accordance with the objective of the curriculum.
